Maihuenia poeppigii is an easy-to-grow plant which is a moisture-tolerant cactus. Reliably cold hard in central Europe and England. Maihuenia poeppegii can survive outside in the garden in the sunny rockery on a sheltered place, but only if it's protected with a sheet of glass during the wintertime. It is also very good for a large pot which can be stored inside an unheated greenhouse or on a balcony, somewhat protected from moisture during the winter It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh frost. They should not be kept hot in summer as they are from high elevations. For a balanced denvelopment, it is best to position the Maihuenia poeppigii in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. Water these plants only from time to time if grown outdoors, but it should be watered abundantly if grown in a pot or in the greenhouse, during the summer. repotting every 2-3 years.
